Raleigh is the capital city of North Carolina. It’s known for its universities, including North Carolina State University. The number of technology and scholarly institutions around Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham make the area known as the Research Triangle. The North Carolina State Capitol is a 19th-century Greek Revival–style building with a statue of George Washington dressed as a Roman general in its rotunda.

High Level Vision: With these challenges addressed, now provide a high level description of how the Place and the lives of its People will be different than they are now.

addresses homelessness, food insecurity. My vision will improve the lives of individuals, families, and communities

Full Vision: How do you describe your Vision for a regenerative and nourishing food future for your Place and People for 2050?

As I focus on people that go to work and yet their basic needs are not met due to low wages. It causes them to be homeless, food insecure, sick, and suffer from depression. With my vision, I have tried to address these main concerns. I am one of these people. I live within this population. This is not something I have seen passing by or saw on the news. I have lived these experiences. My desire is to bring about change first at home and then aboard. I want to be the change I seek by improving the quality of life for individuals, families, and communities.
